Spent a few hours walking around and found it enjoyable and interesting. It was a cold winter's day and there was snow all around but it only added to the enjoyment. Great place to spend a few hours.

Greatly enjoyed the walks through tree-thematic trails. Maple path in the fall is a burst of color! Perfect place to bring a picnic, read a book and enjoy the nature.
